The Past Players Association are also having an additional table at which other famous faces from the past will sit.
All the guests will be spread around the room so that everyone will have the opportunity of sharing the company of, and chewing the rugby league fat with, at least one of the “dignitaries”.
This is a once-in-a-generation event that no right-minding Warrington fan should want to miss. Tickets are now available in the Club Shop, or you can download a booking form here.
